The Holy Shroud » 2015 Exposition » Volunteers
The "Purple jackets" are the most important asset in support of the Holy Shroud Exhibition, the Church and the City of Turin. Over 4,500 volunteers will be available to support the organization of the event, welcoming pilgrims inside the Cathedral and guiding them along the Royal Garden path, through the bookshop and the Royal Castle.
As in previous events, the volunteers are mostly from the parishes of the diocese of Turin, but some are members of the Italian military forces (e.g. the Alpini -Italian Alpine Military Troops; Carabinieri and Guardia di Finanza) and other volunteer groups. Some of the volunteers had offered their work and time on the occasion of the 20th Winter Olympic Games in Turin 2006.
